About Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

The name Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs might sound like a children’s picture book or cartoon series. In fact, the music that Orlando Higginbottom makes under the alias captures a far more mature mix of emotions, one where youthful whimsy collides with wistful nostalgia. The Oxford artist got his start in the late 2000s, when his first EPs appeared on Hot Chip’s Greco-Roman label—the perfect launching pad for his own ambivalent electro-pop, where jacking house and UK garage grooves meet melancholy falsetto melodies. He released his debut LP, Trouble, in 2012, perfecting his bittersweet brand of indie dance on songs like “Garden”. In the years since, he’s stretched the boundaries of his sound—collaborating with artists like Porter Robinson, Bonobo and BRONSON—while staying true to its fundamentals. In a Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs song, the dance floor is always the shortest path to emotional catharsis.
